citizen volunteers that would be summoned by their governors to the defense of the whole was preferable to standing federal military. a standing army had always been in the old world -- source of corruption of the authoritarianism of centralized power, dictators love standing armies because they got control of it they controlled the country. it was very much part of the early american experience that you did not want a standing army. one of the most important moments in george washington's life was when he resigned his commission and went back to mt. vernon because every -- almost every other commanding general in a struggle like this would have kept his army, declared himself regent or chancellor or dash king or president. and george iii is -- said to have remarked if washington actually resigns as commission and goes home would be the greatest manning to have lived and he was. so that -- the defense of the country then fell to smaller organizations. soing the second -- wording of the second amendment is, you know, the rights of -- militia well regulated militia being critical to deliv
spending categories, national defense, many of what we call the domestic discretionary programs would also be hit. this is a big fiscal wallop to the economy and a lot of economists believe it could cause a double-dip recession. patti ann: on the other hand we are hearing from lawmakers, some at lease on both sides that they would quickly, both houses, the house and senate pass legislation to rollback those tax hikes on at least some americans at the lower end, and that maybe they would end up keeping them for the higher end because once they are in much harder to remove those tax hikes. do you believe that that would happen? patti ann: yeah, look, i think a lot of this is high theater, this is just drama i think it's going to play out probably until december 31st, maybe it will be 11:00pm right before the stroke of midnight in the new year before these guys reach a deal, but i'm predicting they will maybe a deal i. talked to my congressional sources last night, they said the presiden the president in his overtures sounded much more conciliatory like he wanted to reach a deal. they are not

early last week. they stopped the defense sequester and that's all they did because it won't go anywhere after that. the $500 billion in defense cuts are still set to take place. all the other spending cuts are set to take place and it's, of course, in deal-making this is called the ckabuki theater and people are depending on them to get it right by the deadline. there's no argument being made that it's good to go over the fiscal cliff. >> please, make the argument, dean. >> one argument is that there are will be a lot of people in washington that pretend to be ve very knowledgeable. but seriously, if nothing happens on january 1st, i'll be subject to a higher rate of withholding. if they do a deal on january 5th as opposed to december 28th, the difference to 99.9% of the population is basically zilch and we get to see a lot of people with egg on their face. >> why. >> because they've been running around like the myian calendar, the end of the world and it's nonsense. the reality is on the spending side, president obama will keep spending in accordance with what he thinks the deals look
more points of defense in a school than just one armed guard that would be very visible and if someone were maniacal enough to come and attack a school they'd probably take that guard out first and there are school districts around the country and one in texas where i've spoken with the superintendent northwest of dallas, and the whole state of utah permits concealed carry of teachers and it's worked out very well. these have not become targets because i think most of the criminal class understands that an armed victim is too dangerous to take on, if they can go some other way to do their crime. >> there are some assumptions there and that is, of course, the question of mental health. you're seeing those of this side like to commit a crime and they're aware of these limitations and these challenges and we just look at columbine as senator feinstein was saying yesterday in addressing mr. lapierre's comment and she was saying look at columbine, there were two armed guards there. that did not work. >> they fled, whereas if you are under attack and you have a gun then it's rather reasonabl
but it stands only for the constitutional right to possess a handgun in the home for self-defense. it doesn't say anything about guns on the streets, although other lower courts are beginning to chew on that question and it may be coming to the supreme court. but in general gun legislation has pretty much withstood the supreme court decision. it says possession by certain can be banned, it's not a get out of jail free card for anybody who opposes gun legislation. >> pete williams, thank you so much for that perspective for us there in washington, d.c. >> let's bring in our panel to talk more about the politics of this heated debate. jake, start with you. you work on the hill and the question now is is there 60 votes in the senate, there are 218 votes in the house for gun control legislation to get passed? >> i think before you start count being the votes you have to consider whether speaker john boehner will even bring this to the floor. he was asked last week if he supports gun control measures, he said he was very noncommittal, he said he'll look at anything but speaker john boehner and h

to succeed the defense secretary. you have former republican senator chuck hagel being talked about as a possible replacement as defense secretary, but i understand there's a lot of complications here and even controversy. can you tells what's happening in terms of background discussions of chuck hagel taking that job. >> you know, his name has been out there for a few weeks now as the sort of so-called front-runner. maybe it's a bit of an administration trial balloon at this point. we don't know. officially the white house hasn't made a decision on who at the present times to be the next secretary of defense, but they have let hagel's name be out there. that gave time for the opposition to reform. republicans and even democrats on capitol hill, his former allies coming out and being concerned about some of his positions that he took as a u.s. senator. alleging that he was not strong enough on countering iran, did not strovote for iran sanctions especially critical of his stance on israel. that he was perhaps not as supportive of israel as he should have been. chuck hagel is a prese
of difference as well as the last line of defense. >> reporter: the debate over semi-automatic weapons and high capacity magazines has raged since the shooting at sandy hook. a gallup poll found 53% agreed increasing police presence in schools would be very effective. a third said somewhat effective, 12% said not effective and 42% said banning the sale of automatic weapons and nor an third, 36% said it would not be effective. feel free to weigh in on my page at rick levanthol over the debate of gun rights and greater restrictions continues. >> heather: rick, thank you. >> gregg: search for justice in the benghazi, libya terror attacks. a scathing report placing blame squarely for security failures. while sparking new debates we have much closer look at the issue. >> heather: the word no one wants to hear, deadlock, can president obama and lawmakers find a solution before the january 1st deadline. >> gregg: and remarkable recovery just in time for christmas. how a community came together to help the church devastated by hurricane sandy. >> describe the damage. >> it was absolutely devastation. t
as republicans want but clearly they have moved on that. and i also think there will be substantial defense cuts, if we want to make a dent in the deficit. i mean this is the choice that is going to be in front of us. if, we have to do four things if we want to reduce the deficit. we have to get more revenue, we have to cut domestic spending, we have to trim and reform the health care programs in particular of medicare and medicaid and we have to cut defense. if we do all four of those things we can make significant down payment getting deficit under control. if we do some of them, the numbers are not there enough to make as much progress as we want. this is where mark and i agree. over next six to nine months we could see substantial progress towards smart fiscal policy in the country if the two parties come together. heather: we'll see what happens. thank you both very much for joining us until monday night. thank you. >> merry christmas. happy new year.

themselves playing defense. force to abandon large swath of the north, they resorted to firing scud missiles in the direction of the rebel enclave. time and momentum appear on side of the rebels. video shows them using better tactics, fighting as coordinated army, better equipped by the weapons they capture from the syrian government bases. 200,000 bullets, 3,000 hand grenades and cannon inventory at aleppo captured over the weekend. >> there is aftermath of bombing. some videos show civilian casualties. proving the line between civilian and citizen soldiers is blurred. now the rebels will face far greater challenge as they push government troops back and fight in cities they are no longer among friendly population. >> many observers note they have at least nine lives of proverbial cat. reports indicated his army was running dangerously low on diesel fuel. now we know the russians resupplied him. he is defiant. peace envoy left damascus in the past couple of hours and said there is little hope to hope civil war will end soon. >> you are in bethlehem where it's early christmas morning. what a
on the senate banking committee. >>> he hasn't been nominated as defense secretary yet, but former senator chuck hagel is getting some heat. hagel apologized for comments he made years ago that even heinse. let's bring in barbara starr at the pentagon for more on this potential chuck hagel nomination. we don't know if he'll be nominated yet. barbara, what are the attacks against hagel? >> classic washington trial balloon. the nomination isn't out, nomination hasn't been made, but the pins are sticking in that trial balloon. first, senator hagel apologized for comments he made back around 1997, 1998 when there was a man who was openly gay about to become an ambassador, hagel opposed all of that, made some comments about gay people. now he says all these years later he regrets it, it is not what he believes. and by all accounts members of those who represent pro gay rights movements in washington have accepted senator hagel's apology on that. item number two, a lot of questions about whether hagel is tough enough on iran. did he cast some votes in the senate that did not support sanctions against
there is the first line of defense. it drastically reduces response time. >> these teachers would take a bullet for their children and just a lot to ask because i know how much they love our children. and they do. i thank them so much. gregg: well the chief of police says the new commitment will cost a beg chunk of his budget but he is not willing to take any chances with the safety of children. heather: to a fox weather alert now on a massive winter storm that is also causing dangerous driving conditions out west. take a look at this. this is interstate 80, the main route from act meant -- sacramento to reno, negative vaud. police are requiring chains on all vehicles except four wheel drives and those with snow tires. you can see why right there. chief meteorologist rick reichmuth live in the fox extreme weather center. over the river and through the woods to grandma's house if you have snow tires, right? >> that is across the sierra nevada pass. that often happens when they get snow and get a lot of it. they got six feet of snow. great news for all the ski resorts there. they need that for th

, the defense department, that are facing these cuts as a result of the fiscal cliff are planning already ahead knowing that there will be negotiations afterwards if no deal is reached, and believing that some type of remedy will occur. they are not really starting to cut as much as they would believing that some deal, even if it doesn't happen before january 3rd will happen after january 3rd. >> reporter: you can be sure that they are actually lobbying and actually trying to get a deal done. as we see members of wall street and ceo's saying get in there and get in the room and get a deal done. you're speaking of negotiations, prior to this standoff the negotiations between president obama and house speaker john boehner tpaeufpltd the so-called plan b alternative failed in the house. so now the senate has the hard task of doing something. so what plan do you expect senators to possibly adopt, and do they have enough time to even get a plan into place? >> it's a good question. there was a quote today in the new york times from a senior democratic aide who said it's hard to under state how little
defense attorney. the court called her, holly, irresistible attraction. >> well, let's just start with that, okay? >> how does this come into the decision? her attractiveness was irresistible? >> that's what this deny temperature claimed when he fired her. and he said the reason i fired her, my wife was getting jealous. and we didn't do anything. but i thought she was so attractive, i thought i might do something in the future if she continued to work with me. my wife thought the same thing so i fired her. your gut reaction as a human being, don. i saw that headline, and i was like, what, are you kidding? your gut reaction is that is ridiculous. read the decision of the iowa supreme court and basically what they're saying is, look, you weren't fired because you were a woman. you were fired because you're a good-looking woman. and that's a difference. that's not gender discrimination. that's like pretty discrimination. >> that's hating. >> right, right, exactly. >> all right. so let's look at her. everyone is like -- all right. so we've held the audience in expense long enough. whe
the offensive and defensive line will have trouble getting on to the roads. >> stanford is favored over wisconsin. if they win the rose bowl than coach can say they did something neither jim harbaugh or andrew luck ever accomplished. >>> boise state keeps making trips to vegas. from winning the las vegas bowl three consecutive years. this young boise state fan won a mustache boise state goes ahead of washington. broncos usually good for trickery. double pass plays. huffs and puffs and blows his way in for a touchdown. never actually hit the ground. that's a touchdown. they finish 11-2. huskies just 7-6. >>> louisiana lafayette coach led them to the new orleans bowl today. huge fan following. harris had the entire east carolina team following him. tied. louisiana lafayette wins the new orleans bowl and this lovely parting gift. >>> tomorrow the nfl double header day here at ktvu. you see the new orleans and dallas game. then at 5:00 p.m. we will air a special 49ers seahawks pregame show. >>> it's going to be a very merry christmas for cody ross and family. he agrees to a three year, $26
the issues of defense. those are the things he did not touch before. what does that mean in terms of even if this constitution is ratified at some point of course for him, what does it mean for his rule something. >> morsi is clearly failing in doing, in bringing in the political factions, what they like to do is say we are the majority and everyone else is upset because they lost. that is simply a lie. when you see hundreds of egyptians saying weigh your checks and balances, what they are saying is after a revolution, you must take the whole country in consideration, and be the president for the country. not for the muslim brotherhood. he can only restore the country, if they -- you cannot do it as the muslim brotherhood president. that is something you can only do as the president of egypt. >> that is not exactly the platform he worked on. the question is what can the opposition do now? >> the opposition can do a lot. i admire what they are doing, pressing the women's issues on freedoms and it's such a valuable thing. because morsi thought he could shove down the throat of the people --
that they will play under coach reid. last game, griffin picked apart the eagles defense. the hookup with santana moss was the longest of the day. nick foles has improved as a quarterback. although they only one one game in five starts, this did it in drama sick fashion. you know, no one in the locker room is jump can around, excite that had we are on a win streak and we control our own destiny. everyone is still focused on what we have to do and everybody is still feeling sore from the game. >> a win over the eagles would give the revved skins their first sweep of philly since 2008 and one more win away from making the post season one more win and they will be in for sure and host a home game. >> that's huge. >>> still ahead, the fall jawt continues from the national rifle association's comments. the latest on that coming up next. รณ >>> more on the fallout from the nra's comments. among the most controversial was the nra statement that violent video games, the media, movie and music are what is causing our kids to kill. >> the only way, the only way to stop a monster from ki
by the department of defense shows that 20% of our active duty military personnel report they engaged in heavy drinking in 2008. binge drinking rose from 35% of personnel in 1998 to 47% in 2008. drug abuse of illegal and prescription drugs rose from 2% in 2002 to 11% in 2008: the report recommended better screening and that's just what the marine corps is doing, according to a directive issued in month the purpose of the screening program is to provide gheanders and additional tool to provide marines and sailors in their commands at risk for the adverse effects of alcohol abuse or misuse. the report notes that alcohol has long been a part of military culture. but it recommends better leadership on the frish top commanders all the way down. and it says this spike in cases results partly from outdated approaches to preventing and treating substance abuse. the marine corps is the first to have this strict screening policy. of the program begins january 1st. marines will u breathalyzer tests twice a year. those with blood alcohol levels .01 or higher will be referred for counseling. those with .04
. somebody has a ranch has several acres of land, a long gun could be a very vital defensive firearm for them. >> someone could, but can't a handgun be the same thing or a shotgun do the same thing? something that doesn't fire off multiple rounds and kill masses of people at the same time? >> they all fire the same way. every time you pull a trigger it fires one round. a pistol the same way, a semiautomatic shotgun. >> even with the magazines that can go 10, 20, 30 rounds at a time? >> no, they cannot. a semiautomatic rifle like at ar-15 traditionally has a 30-round magazine. when you pull the trig around hold it down it's only going to fire one round. >> why do you need 30 rounds? what do you need 30 rounds for, unless you want to kill a multiple number of people? >> somebody that's using any weapon, assaulting people who are completely defenseless, it's horrible. but turn those tables around. here in atlanta last year when he a series of very violent home invasions in north fulton county that targeted specific groups. they came in three, four people all armed. the person on the other end, a

're not armed well enough, perhaps and that they do need to have proper defense. so for instance, the department of education study shows that public schools around the country, 28% have a firearm, and 22% a chemical spray and 17% have a stun gun on firepower alone when you look at these tragedy, unfortunately, even when you do have a police and security at those locations they're severely, severely overmatched when it comes to firepower. >> well, i think it shows in columbine, just for example, even there that having armed police officers at the scene at the school didn't stop that attack from happening. look, i have the utmost respect for men and women in uniform who every day put their lives on the line to protect all of us and i'm grateful for their service, but with security and police having them in the schools isn't the primary answer for protecting our children and it's about preventing people from getting these assault weapons in the first place and we can do that most effectively by passing assault weapons ban and eliminating these extended gun clips as being legally sold in the countr
think that is the fine type of leadership -- yes, in this area of the proper defense of our consulates overseas, the proper thing was done. in other areas, not for political purposes, but for making sure we get the right lessons learned that has to be completed in terms of investigation. we need the fbi to finish the criminal investigation to find out the perpetrators, terrorists, that did this so we can get them. second, in what the talking points episode was all about, how come the interagency, good reasons or bad reasons, changed those talking points overtime? we need -- as senator feinstein once said, to understand the process so it's done better in the future. a big believer of lessons learned and applying them. which didn't happen in the state department this time. it was not needing, the restriction and requirements of the last accountability review board completed in 1999. we didn't have that meeting those standard and learned that lesson again. >> a painful one indeed. good to see you as always. many thanks. >> happy holidays. >> and to you in the one-minute play back, weird h

lugar made of richard murdock, and murdoch's defense of himself as it is the same thing. he said he doesn't want to legislate. he said i don't want to legislate. he said he would make the compromise necessary to get things done. murdoch said that's exactly what i want to do. if you let me i'm going to throw sand in the gear of government and prevent things from getting done. i don't agree with that consensus that has been with washington for so long presenting a different path. and that is true with of the rise of the tea party movement of 2010. voters that voted for the tea party candidate or not tricked into the kind of tactics that supporters of the tea party movement were going to fall back to washington. they said they were willing to take the government to the in of the cliff and over the cliff because they said that was the only way that they could achieve the kind of political and that they wanted to see. so, and the ending seems to me that the fundamental problem here or a fundamental problem is dealing with such a lack of faith in government and such a disconnection the di
of the defense budget had proposed a really remarkable set of additional cup acts and means tested programs of one sort or another. i even saw the columnist in this lucid analytic reporters, david rogers at "politico" show his emotion in the course of writing about that. and of course we had yesterday a successful republican filibuster on the senate democratic plan for extending a lower student loan rate and financing it in a particular way. i noted in "new york times" that this is the 21st successfulsuesr republican filibuster in this congress. most of it is not a few of cose consequentialqu as the filibustr was in the first two years because there is a republican house in any case and democratic wishes from the white house ando senate are likely to be b realized. but the fact that it's been sobo commonplace and is taken for fr granted that in most press reports the word terror never is elevated to the story of because it's a procedural motion. it didn't.he 60 the 60 votes it needed. it shows you how much the filibuster has become so routine. listen, our argument can be summarized briefly.
a restraining order against her parents. let's talk about this bizarre case with the one and only defense attorney joey jackson with us now. good morning to you. >> good morning, christi. happy holidays to you. >> happy holidays to you as well. thank you for being here. so first of all, these were the girl's parents. of course they want to make sure that she's okay, but where's that line? you know, legally, between being a concerned parent and now, i mean, they are truly dubbed legally stalkers. >> they are indeed. listen, parents need to be concerned, and they should be concerned, but the facts here are ditch, and so when you look at parenting, yes, we all as parents want the best for our children, but it's another thing to become obsessive and here the lines certainly were crossed according to the jump and, christi according to the facts. when you start installing monitoring devices, some parents want to check and see what children are doing. traveling from kansas to ohio where your daughter is in school unannounced not saying anything and then go to her peers, in addition to administra
pleasure use, own self defense. as a result, i believe people are probably acting a little irrationally. we don't know what's going to happen. we don't know what type of policies will be suggested or implemented. >> welcome back. the shootings in newtown, connecticut, have sparked renewed debate over gun control in america and prompted president obama to take immediate action on reforming existing laws. listen. >> this is not some washington commission. this is a team that has a very specific task, to pull together real reforms right now. >> and at the core of the debate is the second amendment. let's bring in cnn legal contributor paul callan. god morning. >> good morning, randi. >> does the second amendment, when you look at it, does the second amendment to the constitution prevent congress from passing tougher gun laws at all? >> no, it doesn't. i think a lot of people were worried because in this recent supreme court decision, heller decision, that confirmed there is an individual right to bear arms, that that would prevent congress from placing restrictions. no, it doesn't. the supreme
. as a star defensive tackle for georgetown university. after college, he met the love of his life. and they moved out west. august 5th, 2006 happened. he spent the afternoon playing beach volleyball with some friends. between games, he ran down the ocean to cool off. he dove into the waves, hit a sandbar and was instantly paralyzed from the neck-down. you're in the water. you can't move. waves are crashing over you. what's going through your mind at that point? >> there was a moment when i was thinking, that could be my last breath. >> reporter: fortunately, an off-duty emt pulled him ashore. and they rushed him to the hospital. a doctor delivered the devastating news to his girlfriend, susan. >> she looked my in the eye and said, you need to be prepared for him never to walk again and walked away. i'll never forget that. >> reporter: with his spinal cord fractured, he spent two months in intensive care, developed pneumonia and nearly died twice. >> he came to me and said, you don't need to do this. you don't need to be here. i promised him that, as long as his heart and his mind
and his possible nomination as defense secretary. do you think this is a new thing, roland, to shoot down a nomination, when it's just been sort of floated as a trial maroon? >> actually, it's why trial balloons were actually created, to sort of gauge the public, if you will. i still believe president obama should have put ambassador rice's name forward, and he should have dared the united states senate to vote her down. and also, i think, if you look at the administration, they have not done, to be honest, an effective job of really getting the cabinet out in a large way. because you think about the last four years, secretary of education, arne duncan, he had an opportunity to really step out there. secretary of state, hillary clinton, defense secretary bob gates. but you did not have, again, your labor secretary. you didn't have your commerce secretary, your energy secretary. so he relied on sort of the people just around him. i think this administration and the president should do a better job of getting his cabinet out there, because, frankly, most americans don't even know who the re
who don't want to do anything as far as defense in the schools and i think we could regret that if there were another incident that might have been prevented. >> surely a big debate about that. under the plan each public school would designate one person to keep the gun in a secure, locked location. it would be a voluntary program. state law would need to be amended before that plan can move forward. >>> customers at starbucks this morning reacting to ceo howard schultz's plan telling workers in the washington, d.c., stores to write the words "come together" on coffee cups. >> "come together." a nice beatles quote there. i think it's kind of a cool idea, but i -- you know, i don't know that the politicians really care. >> i think it means that people are basically tired that congress can't come to a compromise or actually agree on anything, if we're talking about something as huge as sdp that's going to affect taxes that affect everybody else in the united states, it's indicative of the kind of deadlock that we're at in the system right now. >> it's all about the fiscal cli
american and huge spending cuts to defense and social programs are set to take effect the 1st of january unless the president and congress reach a new budget deal. but most lawmakers have deserted the capital to be home for christmas leaving america teetering on the brink. one of those enjoying christmas back if california is republican congressman tom mcclintock joining us from sacramento, california. you are a tea partier. you're part of the tea party caucus but you supported house speaker bane area plan b. yes? >>, of course, i did. again, there is no bill before the congress that proposes raising taxes on millionaires or anybody else for that matter. there is a law that goes into effect in ten days that raises taxes on millionaires, small businesses filing as millionaires and everybody else. boehner's bill tried to stop that for everybody else. offa lifeguard sees ten swimmers drowning off of his beach and can only reach nine of them to save them, it doesn't mean that he's drowned the tenth one. all in nonsense somehow boehner was trying to raise taxes is just that, nonsense. >> your
